Free Download Provides Comprehensive Amplifier and System Control
ORLANDO, FL, June 17, 2009 – Powersoft Srl, Italy, a world leading manufacturer of superior quality power amplifiers for the professional audio market, is proud to announce the official release and immediate availability of Powersoft Audio Suite software at InfoComm 2009 (Booth 6384). Audio Suite provides total PC-based control of the numerous parameters found in Powersoft amplifiers and represents the framework control protocol for current and future products. Visually representing all control and signal processing features, the software is downloadable free of charge from the Powersoft web site and will allow users to manage and monitor all K-series and remote versions of the Q, D and QTU series amplifiers.
Powersoft Audio Suite provides an engineer with a comprehensive graphical interface that is easy to navigate and presents all information needed to run a multiple amplifier installation, with no limits on the amount of amplifiers connected to the system. Tab-activated parameter control and monitor screens include General, Block Scheme, Input EQ, X-Over & Output EQ, Temperature Log and Events Log.
Audio Suite provides new advanced functions to all K-series DSP models including:
• Comprehensive signal processing with a complete and extremely flexible, user friendly Input EQ.
• Loudspeaker management, with real time load impedance measurement through active program audio, obviating the need for special carrier signals, and giving engineers the capability of importing pre-programmed measured frequency response settings for fast and easy preset reproduction.
• System set-up with easy to use off-line system architecture and parameter controls with advanced grouping features. An extremely secure protection scheme is built into the software architecture to prevent accidental changes to preset definitions.
• Overall system monitoring delivering real time, visually presented information of customized parameters and the ability to cope with the highest performance requirements for both live and fixed install applications of any size.
Audio Suite is fully compatible with Powersoft's new Ethernet-based control board K-AESOP (AES3 & Ethernet Simple Open Protocol ) optionally installed in the amplifier. Through the use of K-AESOP, Audio Suite performance is greatly enhanced as the Ethernet networking assures faster data refreshing and data exchange between each amplifier and the host computer. This is especially powerful for large systems or remotely installed systems. All Audio Suite features are addressable using the standard RS-485 serial connection that is a standard feature on Powersoft amplifiers.
To accommodate existing Powersoft systems, Powersoft Audio Suite will be accessible via a special firmware upgrade card provided free of charge through Powersoft's partners. After the initial firmware upgrade, all future firmware upgrades incorporating additional functions will be possible by downloading the upgrade within the Powersoft Audio Suite software directly.
